Curriculum Aims

 

 

 

 

The fundamental aim of the school is to enable the pupils to achieve success, and to develop - educationally, socially, physically and morally.

We aim to offer all our learners the opportunity to develop and learn in a supportive, caring environment which has high expectations for all to achieve.

We value all of our pupils equally, and their right to be different.
We are sensitive to what makes each one special, their cultural and linguistic differences, and we are committed to their right to equal opportunities.

We aim to meet the needs of all children in a challenging learning environment.

We offer three different curriculum stands which are Sensory and experiential, modified and supported as well as our post sixteen provision.

Each strand is designed to meet the educational development needs of learners of all our pupils.

The Personal and Social Development of our pupils is a major aim of all the experiences we offer in school. Throughout their time with us, all pupils are encouraged to develop skills as independent learners, to make choices, to take responsibility for their actions, and to value themselves and others.

The curriculum includes Religious Education, which aims to give an understanding of the world's major faiths, and is concerned with the moral and spiritual development of children and young adults living in a multi-cultural society.

At Beechcliffe School we support the values of democracy, rules of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs and these are embedded within our curriculum.

These values are found in our own school values identified as respect, kindness, honesty, hard work, cooperation, fairness, confidence, tolerance, politeness and responsibility.
